The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter Review

The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter
Amazon, Kindle, Barnes and Noble, Indiebound, Book DepositoryKobo
Goodreads Summary- Love or life.
Henry or their child.
The end of her family or the end of the world.
Kate must choose.


During nine months of captivity, Kate Winters has survived a jealous goddess, a vengeful Titan and a pregnancy she never asked for. Now the Queen of the Gods wants her unborn child, and Kate can't stop her--until Cronus offers a deal.

In exchange for her loyalty and devotion, the King of the Titans will spare humanity and let Kate keep her child. Yet even if Kate agrees, he'll destroy Henry, her mother and the rest of the council. And if she refuses, Cronus will tear the world apart until every last god and mortal is dead.

With the fate of everyone she loves resting on her shoulders, Kate must do the impossible: find a way to defeat the most powerful being in existence, even if it costs her everything.

Even if it costs her eternity.

So, this is it. The final book in the series. And boy does it have a lot to accomplish! Relationships to heal, people to bring together, battles to fight and if we're lucky Kate and Henry and their baby will get a happy ending. I've really enjoyed this series despite some small complaints. Yes, Henry does seem to be a bit of a blank wall sometimes. He seems to have a bit more feelings in this book. Especially when it's crucial. Kate still suffers from being a martyr. Why she doesn't think she deserves happiness and everything that all the others around her are fighting for I don't know. She's constantly throwing herself in the line of fire. And of course, she's being kept in the dark about the Council's plans so I guess she does have a right to feel like she should do something.

But the one thing I wanted in this book was a little more one on one time between Henry and Kate. I wanted to see them warm up to each other, have a chance to know each other. See the fun side of  Henry. But he's always so straight and stiff. So though I thought it was well planned out and a good strong finish for the series, I still wanted more of Henry and Kate. I've always wanted that, throughout the series. I just guess it wasn't meant to be and it left me feeling a little wanting in the end. However, everything else was wrapped up (for now according to what I read....).

Thanks to the publishers for an e-ARC of the novel made available through NetGalley. The opinions expressed are my own. No monetary compensation was received for my review.

  1. I wanted a bit more of Henry and Kate together in this book as well Heather. I just have never quite fully believed in their feelings for one another, and I was hoping this book would be the one to convince me. Sadly it didn't. Despite that and Kate's tendency to fall on her sword constantly, I still really enjoy this series as a whole. Aimee Carter is a great storyteller:)

    1. I totally agree. She can tell a story full of a lot twists and turns and it was very entertaining. I just wanted the romance.

  2. I haven't delved into this series, I just haven't felt the pull. It sounds good and all, but I don't think I would be a fan of the romance and all that. I think it has potential but I don't think it is for me. I am glad though that everyone who stuck with the series enjoyed the ending.

    1. I think if you like the Greek mythology, you'd enjoy it. I was skeptical because of all the people's complaints I'd read about the first novel, but I really enjoyed the series overall.

  3. I was also not totally convinced of their romance. Some true one on one time would have helped. Still, was a pretty entertaining series to read. I think there are a few novellas, but I think those are more about the other gods.

    1. Yes, your review and mine were similar. I felt very much like you did. Just a little of Henry and Kate time to convince us would have been nice.

    2. Oh and the novellas are really great. You understand why Calliope hates Walter so much and I really didn't blame her. It was a really interesting companion novella. You should read it.

    1. Oh, you have to read it. You should read the first and the companion novel first. It makes the third one make so much more sense.

      Glad you stopped by!
